Wiggins might change his mind if Contador does Giro. I still think ASO will invite Saxo but the fact that he has to wait till whenever the **** to find out messes everything,

Maybe another giro - tour?
With a stronger team he probably does not have to use so much energy in the giro this time

Christ guys stop being so closed minded "oh he could win the giro yay"

The most important thing is that Contador wins the 100th Tour. A **** you to Mcquaid to Prudhomme to the " oh they are all clean now boo evil Contador doper" brigade.

And to the people who claim Contador needs to prove he can win after the suspension. That otherwise he is just someone who without drugs is talentless.



Besides you know certain people on this forum will have a field year for flaming you lot by saying even if Contador wins the Giro by 10 minutes that until he wins the Tour it doesnt prove anything and that Schleck/ Froome are better because they wont he only race that counts.

It's obvious ASO and UCI are much more interested in teams like Argos.

They got invited in 2009 and they sucked hard. Finished dead last on every single mountain stage. Got invited again in 2012 and they again sucked hard. ASO will invite them again in 2013 if they aren't WT.

I hope Kittel doesn't catch the flu during the Tour because he has a bizarre treatment for that. :o

If Argos becomes WT next year it will be at least fun to see what kind of mistake the UCI made. They're going to do horrible in a lot of important WT events.

Of course its important to remember that the entire WT system is a joke in the first place. Asking for saxo to get in via the WT system was itself making a deal with the devil.

What about FDJ

Pinot<<<< Contador (I think everyone but this Jason Merecier character agrees).

Whoever the **** else they got<<<<<<< Kreuziger, Roche, Majka, Rogers, breschel.


And ASo would invite Pinot anyway. Why they got to send his bottle carriers to fight time limits in every wt race around europe if hes going to do the Tour anyway
